Demo available on XBox Live right now, probably PS3 if not soon

Release date is July 12

graphics are noticeably better, even on my rear projection tv, though its still the same game console as last year's version but they stepped that up, and the fluidity and quickness of the gameplay is very nice...new tackling system that seems more realistic, and more effective defensive play...they have videos included in the demo of the upgrades from the past year and that can explain things better than i can

Dynasty Mode has more customizable options, Road to Glory mode looks great, you can customize your team/schedule and play your entire senior year in high school, including playing on both sides of the ball, I'm looking forward to the improvements there

Played as Texas and lost to Oregon 7-0, when the Longhorns came out on the field Bevo stood up and one of the videos shows Chief Osceola coming out for FSU so I'm about to see if I can beat the Tide

and for your convenience:

Man I wish they would release NCAA and Madden for the PC. Looks like 360 again for me I guess.

98 yard punt return TD by FSU's corner

personally i'm liking the new blocking adjustments

of course I'm playing on Varsity lol

gameplay improvements are nice though, just more realistic

I'm whooping Bama 22-3 in the 3rd, their QB looks like Delhomme (as far as graphics of the player's face as well as throwing picks and not doing great)

btw, clicking on the Add To part of the image in the OP works, but the My Topics part adds a different thread to your My Topics list

So far through one game I've had ~50% of passes dropped.

Seems like more of the same glitchy garbage to me.

And if UT's o-line is this good irl then they'll never need to throw.

one of the pregame tips said you need to release the Left Stick before you release the pass button so you don't over-lead your receivers...I figured it out by my 2nd game, although the zone coverage is still pretty good

[Edited on June 29, 2011 at 1:32 AM. Reason : lol 102 yard kick return for Texas to open the game]

As posted in the other thread... I may have to eventually break down and get a 360/PS3 just to get the latest/greatest NCAA Football.

I'm still back on '06 for the original xbox.

Yeah, as if you couldn't tell... I decided to opt of of the current gen of consoles and this is the ONLY game I miss.

They are making it so you can advance online dynasties by computer now, instead of having to boot up the game

That's so much easier. I'm in for the TWW dynasty. I'm trying to remember with whom did I generate the random team list through Instant Messenger. (a few years ago, maybe the first TWW league) Thinking it was NYM.

Which league do we want to use?

If we do this we should most definitely wait for rosters...

Like:
Feels faster/smoother than last year.

QB scrambling and open field running seem better (still takes a second to get up to speed but after that you don't get chased down by DTs and slower defenders any more).

Momentum tackling means a good back will fall forward a lot, but also on D if you can wing a guy he'll get "stunned" or slowed and you can get him with your next guy better instead of him just running away.

Indifferent:

Punting trajectories seem slightly different.

Seems like its harder to get around the corner as an end (probably more realistic.)

Dislike:

Still hate the new play calling screen, give me the old style with 4 plays and easier package switching.

Still feels like it takes a half second longer to get the ball away on a pass. I know they want you to make your QB get his feet set and scan the field but on a play action, rollout or screen I want a little quicker action on what should be a short close quick throw.

Did you have something else to say? Or are we just now copying NyM's mannerisms wholesale?



And Wisconsin will be good only once the rosters are edited. He won't make the default cut.

Not sure if I'll pick this one up

I've bought the odd year ever year from 03 on (plus '10) and I still think '11 is probably the most playable version yet. They'll probably fuck that up this year. I loaded up my '11 dynasty a few weeks ago and I'm in 2023, might just keep on keeping on there.

He might play NCAA more than anyone else, but he needs a stronger TWW presence

90% of the issue was having to physically log on to the Xbox to advance the weeks

If you can do that now via any computer, it should run seamlessly, as most of us are on computers most of the day

^^could recruit online last year... i think i remember reading somewhere that you have to buy an addon to advance the dynasty online (just the commish has to purchase).

we could use chip-in to pay the commish

I nominate hey now for commish. He has good leadership qualities and isn't afraid to lay down the law. Additionally, his lack of purpose in life will ensure he has plenty of time to make sure everything runs smoothly.

"Online Dynasty Web Browser
•Commish can advance the week from the web – but only if you pay a one-time fee of $2.99 or 240 Microsoft Points
•You can super-sim your games versus the CPU on the web – including calling plays, modifying your depth chart, and more. You can also pause the game at any time, sim forward a quarter, etc. Again, however, this will cost you a one-time fee of $2.99 or 240 Microsoft Points
•Both of the above browser features can be bought in one Commissioner Pack for $6.99/560 MP, and the pack also includes the ability to be commish to up to five dynasties"


So its what, 7 dollars? Fuck it, I'll pay

the NCAA 12 teambuilder site opened today, and if you go to create a team and use existing roster you can see how each player is rated.

QB#16 for NC State is back, defense actually looks legit with all the guys in the 80s

Pretty sure they can't legally fix it, since then they'd be directly acknowledging that they're modeling the game after real players, rather than just the coincidence that we happen to have a short black guy playing the same position and wearing the same number.
